I enjoy my work. Truly, I mix business with pleasure every day. I read funny articles, collect funny photos, and I read juicy celebrity gossip. Until now, though, I had no idea editors and writers looking for innocent stock photos were stumbling on sexy pictures all day. Unfortunately, sex sells. Apparently, it even sells stock photos. The @HornyStockPhoto Twitter account proves it’s never the wrong time to see someone barely dressed for no reason.
Honestly, I’m offended. Can’t searching “coffee” bring up a mug instead of, once again, a sexually objectified man? We’re not simply eye candy, ladies! We have hopes and dreams and need caffeine. Another insane cultural flaw that this Twitter account reveals is how gendered and sexualized every search term is. According to this account, when you google “woman with money,” one result is a man in his car clearly propositioning a sex worker. Why? Why is that the photo you chose?
Anyway, I think you’ll enjoy the strange and funny results that innocent search terms brought up.
